Anyone who hasn't seen this Jap classic, I urge you to get hold of a copy asap. It's a cracker.
Main features: Jap schoolgirls, various weapons, violence, spurtey blood and exploding collars. :bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

A more "plausible" film along the same lines is "Series 7 - The Contenders".

This is a similar "last man standing" type game-scenario but constructed in the style of a US reality game show - it is *very* convincing as such - you will recognise the voiceover guy, the camera tricks/angles and stylistics employed - and if you walked in on someone watching it you'd be forgiven for thinking you were actually watching a real TV show.

Given that it was made about 3 years ago, before the "reality TV bubble" had grown to the size it is currently, you have to be impressed by the director/writers vision.

A hilarious parody - I'd reccommend over BR any day
